Doing anti-racist education among whites
I had a very illuminating discussion with folks who are doing anti-racist education among whites. No, i am not talking about so-called diversity programs, but rather programs that are aimed at moving people into action on the basis of their understanding the nature of the construction of race and racist oppression. Check them out:
“Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) is a national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial justice. Through community organizing, mobilizing, and education, SURJ moves white people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice with passion and accountability. We work to connect people across the country while supporting and collaborating with local and national racial justice organizing efforts. SURJ provides a space to build relationships, skills, and political analysis to act for change.
